One of the most important aspects of the home selling process is ongoing, two-way communication between a seller and the agent who represents them. Lack of communication is the most common complaint from both listing agents and sellers. To avoid this problem, have a conversation with your REALTOR® early on in the process and be clear about what your communication preferences and expectations are.
How often would you like your agent to be in touch with you? What time of day is the most convenient for you to hear from them? Would you prefer a call, text or email with updates?
Most REALTORS® contact their sellers weekly to provide feedback from any showings, to share any newly listed or sold properties in the area, and to answer any questions the seller might have about how the home is being marketed.
If you’d ever like more information from your REALTOR®, just ask! Regular communication between agents and sellers helps to create a pleasant selling experience for all parties in the transaction.
